Breaking news! After over two years of ongoing debate between the EPA and the makers of d-CON mouse poison, the parties have reached an agreement. D-CON will comply with new EPA rodenticide standards and will switch to a different anticoagulant ingredient (diphacinone). The good news here is that this anticoagulant has a readily available antidote and blood test which makes it relatively easy for vets to treat exposed pets (as opposed to bromethalin, the popular neurotoxicant, which has no test or antidote.)
